Green Babies Seed Paper Onesie Plant Me Wildflower Shapes

seed paper onesie

We’re having fun with our new shape: a onesie that can be printed and personalized on many of our handmade seeded papers. Ideal for a #babyshower, #namingceremony or a #birthannouncement.

When choosing favors for your next party, keep future celebrations in mind. We want to ensure that the next generation of babies have plenty of wildflowers and nature to enjoy during their precious #mudpie making years.

Of The Earth strives to leave only baby-sized carbon footprints.

Earth Day 2019

Soon  Earth Day will be here again. I’m excited to share a fun product that you could hand out to friends in celebration of this important day. Wee seeded paper globes that will sprout wildflowers if tended well and kept moist.

He’s got the whole world in his hands.

We have two inch circles and tinier 1.5″ circles. Above is an image of the owner’s hand holding the tiny kind. Keep in mind, he is tall and they are massive!

We can print on the back side of these circles so if you have a special message you want to share with friends and family, we can do that. The printing should not negatively affect the ability of the seeds to germinate. The most important thing is to water it every day during the first month or so.

However you choose to celebrate Earth Day 2019, please keep faith that our planet is worth fighting for. Scientists have agreed that humans can’t operate on auto-pilot like most of our time here.  Consequences of our actions are becoming evident, both for good and bad. So let’s plant some seeds, reduce our use of electricity and water and cause good results to blossom next season in the form of wildflowers. Of The Earth believes Earth Day is important and we hope you do too.

Cherry Blossoms Arrive


When I was young and the cherry trees would spring into their glorious pink, we used to singsong: “popcorn popping on the apricot tree.”  I still don’t know why.

But it popped into my head last week when I first started to see those trees blush. Here are some papers at Of The Earth that put in me mind of the cherry trees now blooming in Seattle.

It also made me think of our blossom wrapping papers and our handmade pink larkspur paper and pink larkspur stickers which look like cherry blossoms as in these images:

What’s the Buzz?

Seeded paper party favors

We were abuzz in the workroom this week. A bride-to-be in Colorado ordered favors with a customized “Meant to Bee” message on the back. I wonder if the couple met through a shared interest in gardening. Regardless, these little treats are sweet as honey and I hope their wedding guests love them.

We have hexagons with bees and a “Plant Me!” message on the back. Let us know if you’d like to join the hive!

P.S. Who else loves honey? These cute bears!

Of The Earth Silk Ribbon and Seed Paper Goods

It is long past time to be sharing these photos that have been inspirational to our brides.

We have had the great fortune of having our paper and ribbon goods featured on many talented designers, artists and photographers Instagram feeds.  While we have our own feeds (ote_seattle, and of_the_earth) they really don’t hold a candle to the creative skills shown in the photos we have seen.

What we have planned here is to share with you the many photos with proper attribution.

If you do end up sharing these with your friends and family, please be sure to give the appropriate nod or mention of the original group of skilled individuals so their work is not in vain.

Wedding Experts! That’s what they called us!

The Seattle Bride Magazine just shared a link on Facebook that talks about an article we contributed to, and they called us “experts”.

Ha! We fooled them, didn’t we?

Here’s a direct link to the article.

We come off sounding pretty good actually.  The quote is taken from a larger message they asked us to contribute last year.  You can find the complete message here on our blog if you do some digging.
